6) ClamAV will say it's out of date. Don't worry. It's only a minor revision and the update should be available from Ubuntu fairly soon here...

If you're looking for an open source virus scanner, check out ClamAV, which ships with most Linux distributions. ClamAV scans for viruses as e-mail arrives.
One open source virus scanner that deserves mentioning is ClamAV. You can plug ClamAV directly into e-mail servers, and it will scan for viruses as the e-mail arrives--before it's delivered to users' mailboxes. It also performs routine scans on files that are served up to Windows clients via Samba sharing. ClamAV even has plugins for scanning files on the fly as they are accessed via Samba.
